Chad

Since gaining independence in 1960, Chad has suffered from political instability, social unrest, and conflicts with neighboring countries. This has left the country with poor infra­structure, an unstable government and a dire humani­tarian situation. In addition to problems that Chadian citizens face, the country also has a great and growing number of refugees fleeing violence in neighboring countries. This influx of refugees has created an even more urgent need for humanitarian assistance. Action Against Hunger has been working to address these problems since 2006.
